Veteran’s Day – Show Your Thanks!

How do you teach your kids about Veteran’s Day? On Monday, my 1st grade daughter will celebrate at our local public school with a visit from Vets and all the kids will wear red, white, and blue.

I’m thrilled to hear her school is celebrating Veteran’s Day and teaching our children how important it is to  honor and give thanks to all military service men and women – and it’s the 50th Anniversary of Vietnam and many of my Uncles served during the war.

An easy way to show your thanks to our veterans and troops? From the comfort of your computer or mobile phone, use Walmart’s thank you app here –!/walmart/app_134289813384778  via Facebook. Just submit your thanks – simple!


In store, Walmart is also having  Flag of Thanks events in a majority of Walmart stores starting week of November 11th.

This is a special opportunity for customers and employees to express appreciation and gratitude to veterans for their service. The Flag of Thanks  – shown here – will be on a corrugate board measuring approx. 4’x6′ that will allow local communities to write separate notes of thanks for their service to our country. Customers will be given red, white, or blue  note cards to write their words of appreciate on and and then attach them to the flag.

Once the board has been filled with notes of appreciation, the store manager should make arrangements to present the Flag of Thanks to the local VA Hospital or American Legion facility in the community after the event.  Love to see these community efforts – and that Walmart is a driving force behind it- to show Vets our gratitude for their sacrifice.
